MENLO PARK, CA, Feb 27, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Tely Labs -- maker of the award-winning telyHD video calling system
-- today announced telyMed(TM) -- a new telemedicine solution that
provides hospitals and clinics with simple, secure and affordable
video access to healthcare specialists for remote consultations.
Developed in partnership with leading providers of telemedicine
solutions and services, the telyMed video calling appliance is the
first solution that makes it simple, secure and affordable for
healthcare organizations to instantly connect key medical teams for
potentially lifesaving interactions. telyMed is placed in the medical
center and enables a doctor to log in remotely via any Skype-enabled
device for consultation anytime, anywhere, as well as connect to
high-end videoconferencing systems via the SIP communications
"For the hospitals and clinics we serve, telyMed has helped lower
medical specialist response times to as little as ten minutes," says
Dr. David McCraney, Chief Neurologist at Net Medical Xpress, a
telemedicine services provider and developer. "Without Net Medical
and telyMed, it's safe to say hundreds of patients in the past year
would have been denied access to potentially lifesaving medication.
These patients received treatment because we offer a solution that
hospitals can afford and it works."
Remote medical consultations by video have become more common in
recent years, but expensive videoconferencing equipment and the
complicated requirements to configure matched solutions on both ends
of the call has prevented wide-spread adoption.
"The telyMed solution delivers the benefits of legacy
videoconferencing solutions at a fraction of the cost," said
Sreekanth Ravi, Tely Labs CEO. "And because it is both Skype(TM)
certified and SIP standard based, telyMed can be used to call anyone,
anywhere in the world, with any Skype enabled device or industry
standard legacy system. This includes laptops, tablets, mobile
phones, or expensive high-end solutions in use in healthcare
Cost structures in the healthcare industry are undergoing rapid
change, while demand for expensive specialists is growing faster than
hospitals' ability to recruit them. "With telyMed, we can afford to
provide 24 hour coverage," said Jim Heckert, CEO of the Gerald
Champion Regional Medical Center. "Before, a specialist had to be
called at home, and then drive in to the hospital for an in-person
telyMed is now available through Tely Labs' growing network of
authorized resellers. telyMed is sold as a software upgrade to Tely
Labs' flagship telyHD and telyHD Business Edition appliances, and is
priced at $299, with a $199 annual renewal fee from the second year
onwards. More information can be found at www.tely.com.
Tely Labs and Net Medical Xpress will demonstrate telyMed at HIMSS13
Annual Conference & Exhibition in booth #8330. The exhibition will
take place March 4-6, 2013 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center
in New Orleans, LA.
